1.Before you begin working on the models, ensure that your hands are clean.
2.Check that the paper you are folding is exactly square. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to fold paper which is not quite square.
3.Do not fold against a soft surface, such as a carpet, your lap or bed sheets. Fold against a hard surface such as a large hardback book or a table.
4.Crease slowly, firmly and accurately. Form the initial creases with particular care - if they are incorrectly placed, all the later smaller creases will be difficult to plac accurately and will look messy.
5.Before beginning work on the models, understand the section of 'Symbols & Methods' very carefully and practice all the folds, one by one, using any square paper.
6.Read the instructions and follow the symbols in each step. Many a mistake is made by ignoring written instructions or by not following all the written instructions in a step, particularly during complex manoeuvres.
7.The instructions and symbols in one step will create a shape which looks like the next step but stripped of its symbols. So, you must always look ahead to the next step to see what shape you are trying to make. Never look at steps in isolation, but see them as being interconnected, like links in a chain.
8.When making a crease, join the corners or edges specified, with utmost care and accuracy. Only then press the paper to form the crease. While pressing to form the crease, always press starting from the points specified and go inwards or outwards from there.
9.If you make a mistake while making the model or feel that your model is coming out differently, retrace your steps one by one until you reach the step that matches. Then go over the instructions again carefully and follow the symbols. You probably missed something very trivial.
